this fight of the middle class comes at a time when the president is on the defensive and lost some ground in key areas. cnn orc poll tonight shows the president's lead is half a point outside the margin of error. last month he was leading with nine points. we told you last night about a pughel poll which shows romney leading obama. you can see also barely outside the margin of error. in that same poll, the president's 18-point lead among women disappeared. he's now running even with romney. so who is winning this vital war over middle class tax cuts? rah ham salon joins us and john avlon, senior political columnist at "newsweek" and "the daily beast." this debate over $5 trillion and what you're trying to do and on the backs of the middle class, this isn't just about a number and who is using a number specifically in what way. it goes to the heart of whether the president is going to win. >> in 2008, barack obama did something incredibly brilliant. he actually managed to outflank the republicans on taxes, which was their biggest, most potent issue for literally decades, by saying, hey, if
to refurbish a full abrams tank that even the defense department admits it doesn't need. all part of the fight over defense spending cuts that we have been talking about on this show rather obsessively for the past year. the $1.2 trillion in sequestration cuts take effect on january 2nd and about half of that sum is going to come from defense, making it a major election year issue. >> they're looming across virginia, cuts to national defense that threaten nearly a million small business jobs. tim kean supported the washington budget deal that got us here. a deal that destroy over 500,000 jobs in the defense industry. >> so if defense spending is such a big issue this year, why are we on the hook for those tanks? drew griffin from our special investigations unit is "outfront" with the story. >> reporter: it's a remarkable sight, parked in the california desert. more than 2,000 of them, row upon row of m-1 abrams tanks, built by general dynamics beginning in the 1980s. most of them are still ready to roll. so when the u.s. army's budget folks sat down to make some tough decisions about what to c
, defense ening. here's a little of what you're so upset about. mitt romney said it today. >> in a place like syria for instance, we should through our partners in the region, work to identify dissidents within syria that are responsible people, try to bring them together, provide weaponing and funding and they can promote their agenda. >> provide funding and weapons for them so they can defend their agenda. >> i have two questions. number one, when we get involved with war or providing weapons, it needs to go before congress. the constitution says that is the prerogative of the legislatures. it's difficult to know who friend and foe are. over a decade now in afghanistan. we have trouble telling friend from foe. the people we're training, the afgh afghan soldiers, are turning their weapons on us. so, how are we supposed to know, who is our friend and foe? there's a significant christian population in syria. they fled from iraq after the war began. they felt it was safer to be under assad. what is that christian population saying? many news reports say they're unsure whether they want to
an opportunity to present his side and he didn't present it adequately. so the defense is saying well, they're commenting on the fact he didn't testify at trial. that's a big no-no. i don't think they went on that because they voluntarily submitted him to this interview, so now, they're going to come in front of a jury and say well, it was wrong for the prosecutor to refer to an interview that we orchestrated? i don't think they're going to win on that. the second point is the case went so fast. >> it did. it was weeks, not months. >> he was only arrested last november of 2011. the case was over in less than nine months with huge numbers of alleged victims, so it went to trial -- >> the trial itself was very speedy. >> in looking at the law, you have a right to a speedy trial. i never heard of a right to a slow trial, have you? that's what they're saying. they pushed us into it and we couldn't prepare. that's the second biggest thing. >> any good litigator will tell his client, don't go in there tomorrow, don't apologize necessarily, i can't have you on the record admitting to this if you'r
it. in my defense, the apes wanted me to do that so i did it. the apes told me they wanted me to do it. how? i can't even begin texplain and i did not have to smear anything on myself. that's a plus. because really, it's all about maintains one's dignity. that does it for us. see you again one hour from now. >>> thanks for watching, erin burnett starts now. >>> a three minute tape released on penn state radio from jerry sandusky. >>> blockbuster, especially on the eve of sentencing. >>> also, obama taking a dive, a big one, it's a brand new poll. is it a sign much things to come? we'll dig into that. >>> and more on the attack that killed an american ambassador in libya. why was a request for extra security in that country denied in the first place? >>> good evening, everyone, i'm ashley banfield in for erin burnett. tonight and "outfront," the obama slide. a brand new poll of likely voters showing mitt romney out ahead and leading the president 49-45%. and look at this. since last month, the president is down six percentage points in that same poll. now, it is just one poll, but ta
